In Belmont she lived for many years and there her children were born. After Mr. Brown's death she remained for some time longer in Belmont, where of course she had many friends and where her devotion to All Saints' Church formed still another tie, but the country always appealed to her very strongly, and after disposing of the Belmont house she settled down permanently on her beautiful Acton farm. She was devoted to Acton and its people and was always an active and willing worker in their behalf.
In April, 1912, as Mrs. Brown was returning to America with her two sisters from the funeral of another sister, Lady Drummond, they had the misfortune to take passage on the ill-fated Titanic. All three were saved, but it is doubtful whether they ever fully recovered from the shock of that frightful and unnecessary tragedy.
Mrs. Brown is survived by two daughters, Mrs. George S. Keyes of Concord and Miss Margery Brown of Acton, and three sons, Murray Brown of Acton, Robert C. Brown of Richmond, Virginia, and Arthur P. Brown, Lunenburg, also three sisters, Mrs. Robert C. Cornell and Mrs. Charles Guthrie of New York, Mrs. Pedro de Florez of Paris.
The funeral services will take place at All Saints' Church, Belmont, at eleven o'clock on Friday morning, June 29th."
Caroline Lane Brown
